The Times-Dispatch had a profile of our new President, Edward Ayers, earlier this week. Today President Ayers writes about the strengths and directions for the University as he takes the reigns. His reflections are juxtaposed to two others who assume leadership roles at other institutions in the region.
It’s really going to be a few weeks before President Ayers is on campus full time. But I am exited to see where he wants to go, and how I can help. For now, I’m focusing on the new school year and how we in The Center, along with our colleagues in the Library, can engage the faculty in discussions on the scholarship of teaching and learning, learning spaces, and IT fluency.
